         or not they are exempt from the Kenyan visa requirements at our respective embassies.

 9.2     Those who are not exempt should apply for visas well in advance from Kenya High Commissions
         or Embassies, which will issue them upon the presentation of documentation showing that the
         applicants are designated representatives to a particular UN meeting to be held in Nairobi. For
         countries with no Kenya High Commission or Embassy, the British Embassy or High
         Commission will generally represent Kenya and be in a position to issue visas.

 9. HEALTH

10.1     Participants must ensure they take out travel insurance (including health) from their home country
         for the duration of their stay in Nairobi.
